Diary Entry: First Impressions of Cairo are quite positive. El Rehab is much cleaner than downtown Cairo. There seems to be less air pollution. Rehab is a pleasant city, although all the apartments look alike, and it is easy to get lost. The kids really miss Hamadi and are very clingy.
In political news, there have been massive street demonstrations against Mubarak in downtown Cairo. I wonder if they will be successful. He came into power in 1981. I was 13 or 14 then. Amazing that he is still here.
I have found a good nanny, Feba. She is Sudanese. She speaks very good English and good Arabic. The kids like her. Such a relief.
Huge protests today in downtown Cairo. People are protesting Hosni Mubarak's government.
